On February 4, 2022, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services released guidance on Form
I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, for H-2B workers seeking to change employers. 

The guidance is related to a joint temporary final rule issued January 28, 2022, by the Departments of Homeland Security and Labor to increase the numerical limits on fiscal year 2022 H-2B nonimmigrant visas and temporarily provide portability flexibility for H-2B workers already in the U.S. to begin work immediately with a new employer after an H-2B petition (supported by a valid temporary labor certification) is received by USCIS and before it is approved.
